MAKEUP TIPS, TRICKS, & TRENDS | PAN AM SHOOT
I recently collaborated with the amazing photographer Alberto Gonzalez, Voguette.com, and Whitney from Wilhemina models in this jet setter style photo shoot promoting Pan Am‘s gorgeous bags! I was drooling over these bags and speaking to Erika Lynn Tapia, Vougette.com’s talented stylist, about how we would wear them. Creative Director Valerie Biener did an incredible job putting it all together. We even had access to the plane used in the new Pan Am series. Some shots were actually taken inside a historic 1958 Eastern Airlines jetliner. Too cool.
For the first part of the shoot the makeup was kept light, natural, and pretty. A great look for Whitney. I used neutral shadows to contour the eyes with some light reflective color on the lids to give the eyes a subtle glow. There was equal emphasis on all parts of the face.
Then we decided to switch it up and give her more of a classic look with a bold red lip while keeping the rest of the face clean and soft. I used Russian Red by MAC, a color rocked by Madonna in her late 80s Blonde Ambition era. It is by far one of my all time favorite matte reds. I promise this red looks good on every one!
